Did you know that avocados have several health benefits? Scientists have proved that a certain toxin present in avocados is able to kill cancer cells - it is used both in prevention and treatment of prostate and breast cancers. Furthermore, potassium in avocado can regulate pressure of blood, and oleic acid in avocado can be used to lower cholesterol level in the blood.



Ingredients:
½ cup water (best: alkaline water)
½ avocado
1 cup chopped broccoli
½ cup cashew nuts
½ cup alfalfa sprouts
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of sea salt and pepper
Some parsley to garnish




Directions:
1. Put the cashew nuts in a mixer or food processor, add some water and puree for a few seconds.

2. Add all the other ingredients (except the avocado) one by one and puree each time for a few seconds.

3. Pour the soup in a pot and warm it up to room temperature. Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile dice the avocado and chop the parsley.

4. Pour the soup in a soup bowl or plate, add the avocado dices and garnish with parsley.

That's it! Enjoy this wonderful healthy soup!

Wellness Tip
Pine nuts
Pine nuts are small edible seeds of pine trees and are high in protein, calcium and magnesium. Use pine nuts to make your own pesto. Roasted pine nuts add nutritional value and zest to any salad.

Recipe
Zucchini and Scallions Fritters
Category: Breakfast
Description: There is a new fan favorite in my house for the best way to put the summer zucchini surplus to use, and it comes in the form of zucchini fritters. Best of all, you only need five ingredients and 25 minutes to go from everyday veggie to all-star appetizer, side dish or snack.
The setup is simple: Grated zucchini joins forces with sliced scallions, flour and eggs. Patties are formed and pan-fried then served hot alongside a refreshing dollop of sour cream. These fritters-slash-pancakes (inspired by their culinary cousin, Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes) make any topping or dunkable sauce fair game, from roasted garlic aioli to tahini yogurt dip. But no matter how you stack ’em, top ’em, slice ’em or serve ’em, one thing is certain: Just a taste isn’t enough when it comes to hot and crispy zucchini fritters.
